Glad to see you have all outside corners with that thin stone. Inside corners suck.

Re: My Parents Outdoor Kitchen Build


Today i got the indian sandstone cut and installed. It was scary to work with because of the natural veins in the stone and how soft it was. Didnt want to break any pieces because it would mean a 45 min ride to get more.

I also finished the veneer on the back splash and got the stainless steel cooler installed.

Tommorow i need to finish up some final pointing, epoxy grout the joints in the sandstone and install the appliances.. then i should be finished.

Fought pooring rain all day so sorry for the poor pictures...

Re: My Parents Outdoor Kitchen Build


Last day in north carolina.

Did my final pointing under the tops, grouted the sandstone, and installed the appliances. My dad just has to finish the electrical. He was an electrician for 40+ years so hes fine doing that.

Now you need to stick around for a few days to enjoy the space.

Very nice work!
